Why The Hoopla About The Bullets' Box Office?

I found the recent article "Meet the fastest five-footer in the NBA" (Sports Business, Jan. 16), about Susan O'Malley of the Washington Bullets, a little confusing. Let me get this straight: The Bullets average only 69% capacity for their home games with the hottest sport in America, and she's considered to be doing a good job? "Impressive," you said.

Please forward my resume to Abe Pollin immediately. In a town like Washington, with no baseball team, a hockey team on strike, and a lousy football team that finished its season in December, to be satisfied with 5,800-plus vacant seats every night is not "impressive."
